Sergej Trifunovic is not so much like Leonardo DiCaprio; more like James Dean with the difference that his rebellion is never without a cause. He has a very controversial and unconventional demeanor and is often thought of as some kind of troublemaker. He is very outspoken and not at least timid about expressing his opinion even though it often clashes with the general attitude. He wears an earring playing Petruccio in Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew" When during one performance of a play a cellular phone in audience kept ringing, he yelled from the backstage:"Just answer it, you idiot!" His interview photos are often utterly unusual (sitting on a privy, or with a magnifying glass in front of his mouth wide open). Some people like his being honest and unique, others hate him.
Brother of actor Branislav Trifunovic.
Son of actor Tomislav Trifunovic.
Studied acting with Natasa Ninkovic, Vojin Cetkovic and Nebojsa Glogovac.
Close friends with Vojin Cetkovic.
He was the first choice for the role of Gavrilo (Milutin Milosevic) but was replaced because of "creative differences" between him and director Srdjan Dragojevic.
